In addition to utilizing all Administrative powers, Bureaucrats are able to:

  • Lock and unlock the database in case of a mass vandalism attack or other considerable issue
  • Manage all user rights
  • Rename users


Bureaucrats have authority over Administrators and all other user groups, with the exception of other Bureaucrats.

Becoming a bureaucrat

Bureaucratic powers can be granted only by another bureaucrat. However, the Editorial Board has the final say on the issue.

Administrators who have used their powers widely, contribute regularly, and have shown exceptional leadership skills may be considered.
